Accommodation type

The predominant capacity provided by an establishment determines the accommodation type. For example, if an establishment provides both motel and camping ground accommodation, but the majority of its stay units are motel rooms, then it would be classified as a motel. Accommodation establishments are divided into five types for the purposes of this survey. The classification system used is the New Zealand Accommodation Classification (NZAC), broadly defined below: Hotels: Includes hotels and resorts Motels: Includes motels, motor inns, and apartments Hosted: Includes private hotels, guesthouses, bed and breakfasts, and holiday farm (farmstay) accommodation (Hosted accommodation is no longer included in the Accommodation Survey.) Backpacker accommodation: Includes hostels Holiday parks: Includes c aravan parks and c amping grounds.
